I want to like this cookbook, and I do like the premise of making recipes with seasonal fruits Having said that, the organization of the book is ridiculous Recipes are not divided into seasons or types of fruit, which really defeats the entire purpose of the book On the plus side, the photos are gorgeous Recipes are a mixed bag.
